SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud finally brought on-prem

The partnership with HPE will allow customers to take advantage of cloud capabilities while keeping their SAP configuration on-premise

SAP has partnered with HPE to make its HANA Enterprise Cloud available on-premise for the first time through HPE’s infrastructure as a service (IaaS) GreenLake platform.

The partnership will allow customers to keep their SAP software configuration and data on-premise while benefiting from the flexibility of the cloud experience, including the subscription-based model that GreenLake is distributed through.

HPE will supply, install and manage customers’ infrastructure, while SAP will contribute their software through the SAP HANA database, including the full SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud catalogue of apps. These will include both SAP S/4HANA and SAP BW/4HANA.

SAP also claims that HPE GreenLake’s cloud service and compliance analytics tools will allow it to offer on-premise capabilities and application management services traditionally offered through the cloud.

The partnership, an extension of HPE and SAP’s existing relationship, aims to meet a longstanding demand from SAP customers unable to use the firm’s software or systems on-premise. The configuration will be distributed through SAP as a ‘turnkey’ system available on a subscription model, favouring businesses that want to keep their hardware on-premise but shift from a capital expenditure to an operational expenditure model.

“The new deployment model SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, customer edition is a direct response to customers who want the flexibility and service level of a managed private cloud, but need to keep their systems in their own data centres, such as public sector and regulated industry customers,” said Peter Pluim, SAP’s executive vice president and global head of enterprise cloud services.

“We are planning to make that possible with cloud services from HPE GreenLake and white-glove operations and application management services from SAP, which will help unlock value and create new experiences for our joint customers.”

The SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud customer edition will feature optimised architecture comprising secure, high-performance infrastructure, including compute, storage and networking technologies pre-configured for SAP software. The system will offer an end-to-end infrastructure with HPE GreenLake cloud services, with HPE GreenLake infrastructure certified as being able to scale based on the demands of SAP customers.
